PhD Proposal Defense - Tim Kowalchik

Mechanical Engineering A Doctor of Philosophy Research Proposal Defense:  Self-Charging Piezo and Pyroelectric Electrochemical Cell   By: Tim Kowalchik   Date: 5/24/2022 Location: MEK 0560 Time: 10:00 AM   Committee Members: Dr. Roseanne Warren (Chair) Dr. Stephen Mascaro Dr. Shelley Minteer Dr. Pania Newell Dr. Shad Roundy   Project Summary Energy harvesting involves the capture of ambient energy in the environment – heat, movement, sound, etc. – for use in varying applications. Effective energy harvesting is a key component in enabling Internet of Things and smart sensor systems of the future through the use of wireless power transfer. The ability to have sensors self-power themselves removes the need replace batteries or run power to each device, opening smart systems for use in areas they would otherwise be impossible to implement.   This project focuses on the development of a self-charging electrochemical cell, able to automatically harvest and store energy in a single battery-like device for later use. This energy capture is… Campus Wide Event: Yes. Tuesday, May 24, 2022, 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM.

PhD Proposal Defense - Karl Garbrecht

Mechanical Engineering A Doctor of Philosophy Research Proposal Defense Entitled:  Integrated Constitutive Modeling Framework using Continuum Thermodynamics and Machine Learning By: Karl Garbrecht   Date: Thursday, 05/26/2022 Time: 10:00 - 12:00 MST Location: TBD   Committee Members:  Dr. Jacob Hochhalter (chair) Dr. Pania Newell Dr. Ashwin Renganathan Dr. Shandian Zhe Dr. Brian Lester   Project Summary      Researchers have successfully developed constitutive models through theoretical reasoning (i.e. a priori analysis) and empirical analysis (i.e. post hoc analysis of data) despite inherent challenges associated with each. One data-reliant approach of current interest is the application of machine learning (ML) techniques to develop predictive models from a given data set. However, model development using ML methods often includes obstacles associated with data sparsity, generalizability, interpretability, and a limited theoretical basis. On the other hand, theoretically derived models often rely on simplifying assumptions and… Campus Wide Event: Yes. Thursday, May 26, 2022, 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM.
